My Samsung Galaxy S5 does not recognize my unlock pattern I've used for years?

The phone is telling me I have one more attempt to unlock before it wipes clean. It does not recognize my unlock pattern all of a sudden. I have tried: Tried my pattern 4 times to no avail. If I try it again, my phone will wipe clean. I tried to Google the problem, but could not find this particular problem. I think it was caused by: Not sure why this happened, but it is an older phone

How do I unlock phone as I forgot backup pin. I don't have a "Forgot Password" on screen to tap?

I forgot what the backup pin is. I don't have the "Forgot Password" option to tap on screen. I am on my last chance to enter backup pin. I appreciate your help. I don't have the "Forgot Password" option that was indicated in one of your steps to unlock phone. I have tried: I tried Android Device Manager. Unfortunately, it is telling me I don't active device. I think it was caused by: I forgot pattern password as well as the backup pin.
